I find it enjoyable for its camp value but the acting is atrocious. I find Clooney particularly bad, he seems so awkward and amateurish. Not that I don't think Clooney is a good actor, it's just in this film. Of course, Arnie hams it up, but what else is he extected to do? It's that kind of film.

I remember I read an article about this recently when they were shooting this movie . George Clooney said the director wanted everybody to act like they were in a cartoon. I don't think anyone working on this movie cared about it. Oh how far superhero movies have come.

I agree, I simply liked seeing Arnie as a villain. But, man, even at 16 years old when it came out, I couldn't believe how laughable I found all the acting. And I'm not that hard to impress when it comes to movies.

I'm so sick of this question. 99% of Blu-rays look better than their DVD counterpart. Period.

It's definitely a kids movie. I had never given it much thought but then about a year ago(?) I watched it with my kids (8 & 5) and they loved it! To them the acting didn't mean anything as it's about par for the course for any of the superhero cartoons they watch, and it's bright and colourful and silly. Seeing how much they enjoyed it made me enjoy it more too. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's a "good" movie but it's an entertaining one.

Anyone see the upcoming Batman Armory from Sideshow Collectibles? The Alfred likeness is amazing.

Yeah, I think that'd be of more interest to the folks in the TDK trilogy thread, but it does look fantastic. Not too pricey, either (there's the initial sticker shock, but, when you do the math, it's among their more affordable products). I'm just happy because of the Batman. I hated their previous attempt, and their West and Keaton look so fantastic that I hoped they'd revisit it, and they did. It really does look incredible, though, and I'd definitely want to get the set with the three of them.

Its realistic in the sense that you actually get to see and understand why someone would dress up like a Bat.

Nolan's versions make everything more real-life and less comic. Both are very good sets of films, but too different to rate together, at least for me.

We won't even talk about Batman Forever or Batman and Robin.

As for Batman the Movie. Well, that film will always be a classic to me because I grew up with it. The only thing bad about it is it's just so dated and campy.
Nolan's movies ARE Batman films! Nolan is based on Frank Miller's and Alan Moore's and Joseph Loeb's take! go read Year One, The Dark Knight Returns, The Long Halloween and The Killing Joke which Nolan loved and remixed them for his movies and they are the best Batman stories ever told, hell even Frank himself praised the trilogy as close to his vision.

Burton's movies are enjoyable but they are definitely more Tim Burton films than less Batman films.

Definitely for me man! i dislike Batman Forever and Batman and Robin yet the first movie looks good and the other looks stunning.

But it baffles me how a piece of crap like B&R looks stunning on HD? i mean you can't polish a turd. I actually walked out of Joel Schumacher's big screen gay fantasy posing as a batman film in 97 when i was a teen, i'm glad Nolan rebooted the series.

Is there a difference, content-wise, between the Batman Anthology and the 4 Film Favorites package?

Reason being is that there is a fairly huge difference in price, and if the 4 film favorites is cheaper, I might simply go for that (more compact, same content).

The anthology has a digital copy of "Batman" on a disc, not an actual DVD of the movie itself. It may have also expired by this point.

That's how digital copies used to come. My Anthology did not come with a digital copy disc as far as I recall.

I know that. but didn't that stop around the time this set was released?
I know some still do it this way, but it is very few and far between.
But Why not do what some others did, DVD and DigiCopy on the same DVD as the movie?

Warner experimented with several ways of delivering Digital Copies.

1) BD with DVD-ROM disc for the Digital Copy
2) BD with DVD that had the movie and the Digital Copy
3) BD with a code to download the Digital Copy from a Warner computer server
4) BD with Flixster/UV code

The Batman Anthology was released during Phase 1, so it only had a DVD-ROM disc. The set went Out of Print for a while, and when it was released again, Warner stopped including the DVD-ROM disc.

I didn't realize that the Anthology was that early in the release schedule. that's what's throwing me off.

I know man, i felt like walking out of the theater when i was your age when it came out and i had to wait until my mom came to pick me up at one of the mall theaters.

I couldn't believe i wasted my money on that garbage and you glad Nolan rebooted the series Yoda?
